    The Brexit Thread

    “British farming can be ‘envy of the world’ after Brexit, leading agriculture figures tell Prime Minister Emma Gatten, environment editor The National Farmers Union, Greenpeace and the RSPB, along with 60 other organisations, have written to Boris Johnson calling for food standards to be enshrined in law after we leave the EU, in a letter seen by the Telegraph. Brexit is an opportunity for British farming to become “the envy of the world”, farmers and environmentalists have told the prime minister in a rare joint missive. The National Farmers Union, Greenpeace and the RSPB, along with 60 other organisations, have written to Boris Johnson calling for food standards to be enshrined in law after we leave the EU, in a letter seen by the Telegraph. “Brexit can be a catalyst for UK farming not just to be the envy of the world, but to provide gold-standard model for high standard, high quality, sustainable food production,” reads the letter, which was sent over the weekend. It calls for the government to include its manifesto commitment to maintain animal welfare and food standards during trade talks in the forthcoming Agriculture Bill....” Lets hope the Government listen.

    Ok yes, fully aware of issues relating to the Police, I wasn’t equating that with the Home office and didn’t realise that was where you are coming from. Yes the police have famously been found by investigation to be Institutionally Racist, my question to you was are there similar findings specifically in relation to the Home Office, as If there are I don’t recall seeing them. Perhaps there was something around Windrush but As I understand it that was a matter of policy set by politicians and not the Home Office as an institution

    CM ”I think you'll find that its the Home Office which has a problem of institutionalised racism, and has had for many years.” Are there any studies or investigations that back that claim up? Are you referring to the Civil Servants who work in the Home Office?

    Best bottom of the league team ever

    I don’t follow your argument, just because other teams field young players that’s got nothing to do with us, all I’m interested in and enjoy is watching the way OUR young players develop in this league. As for using age as an excuse, I’ve not made any excuses and certainly not tried to blame results on youth.

    The odds obviously say we will go down, nothing wrong with a bit of hope though, it’s a key ingredient of being a fan imo. I hope we will win every game no matter who we are playing, the realist in me kicks in when we lose and helps ease the pain. I still enjoy the experience though. Watching our young side play against the best has been terrific this season. It’s not all about the table, if we do stay up it will be an even bigger challenge next time round. As long as we keep playing decent enjoyable footy that’s fine by me, the misery kicks in when we lose and haven’t even given it a go, that’s the pits for me.

    Draw for the 5th round of the FA Cup

    About time we had a decent draw.
  11. Have to say this commentator is calling it right about our defending of set piece, a box full of yellows but we still give free headers. Can we have a whip round and get somebody in to coach defending the set piece. Isn’t this where Webber should come in, identify a problem and give Daniel a bit of practical support and assistance.
  12. He should have been dropped a long time ago.
  13. Ain’t going to be a no score draw.....he said, obviously.

    More Feckin perks for the entitled generation! Cut them adrift and save some money!! "Hundreds of thousands of UK nationals who retired to other European countries will continue to receive annual rises to their UK state pensions following Brexit on January 31. The government delivered reassurance to pensioners in the week that Parliament passed the withdrawal agreement under which the UK will leave the EU at the end of the month. Before this week, the government had warned that expat pensioners in other EU countries might lose annual increases to their state pension if the UK left the bloc without a deal."

    I’m not sure about “they would say that wouldn’t they” BF. Indeed they would say that as they also show their methodology which speaks for itself. I love the critical analysis of good news on here though, always enjoy the balance

    That image sets things up nicely, choose a caption, and we have Finn Russell sent home for breach of discipline, not the greatest start for the Scots, wonder what he did?

    PMI data are compiled from survey questions tracking actual changes in business volumes such as output, not sentiment-based questions.....apparantly
